I can't believe this place pretends to be a French Restaurant. The food is definitely overpriced and extremely bland and boring. I don't believe anything is freshly cooked as it comes out very quickly... From the freezer to the microwave then to the table. No staff understand French. Yes they do rubbery snails where the garlic overpowers all taste, not... More

Also the BYO was good as it maintains the value of the restaurant. Cost was $360 for 6 with two courses each + coffee + BYO and 3 beers... More

Arrived late due to struggling to find a park. Leave extra early on a weekend!! However arriving 15mins late was not a problem, i apologized and the waiter who served us was very apologetic that we couldn't find a park. We sat down and were handed menus and asked promptly what we would like to drink. We asked for water... More

We were looking for something a bit different for our family dinner and chose Larousse. The entree of fried camembert was delicious. The snails were tasty and served with bread to mop up the sauce. The veggies were a little lackluster, but still nice. My son had the duck and loved it. No food was left on any plates. We... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the deep fried Camembert, roast chicken with camembert and asparagus sauce, and a garlic bread to share. All very delicious and very good value. Very much recommended.

Drove past a 100 times and finally ventured into the restaurant on a Friday night...and I'm glad we did! The atmosphere is certainly built around a provincial feel and it works. The staff are very attentive and the waitress knows her dishes. The wine list is not huge for which I find a blessing as they are on the list... More

I love French food, and was staying around the corner at Novotel. I drove past Larousse in a taxi, and was drawn to it because I love French food. While I waited for my plate of duck a l'orange to arrive, I read other TripAdvisor reviews. Based on this, I asked for the sauce on the side. That was very... More
